Well done Tim Spencer and Anne Grant for spotting the IW Council’s tax trickery when it comes to the adult social care (ASC) precept.

While our council tax bills that dropped through the letter box are correct, the ASC precept has been manipulated and bears absolutely no relationship to a 4.99 per cent increase on last year's precept, it’s more like a 34 per cent increase.

This will impact next year when the precept will be calculated on this fictitious, much-higher amount.

Perhaps Cllr Dave Stewart and IW Council chief executive John Metcalfe might like to explain what’s going on.

I’d be interested to hear how they style this anomaly out.
